Rating from notes. I have had this on tap in Asheville and most recently from a bottle. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, toffee, earthy notes, a splash of coffee, some bitterness to the finish, medium body, decent porter.

Pours black in the glass with a touch of red when held up to the light. Mocha and a hint of caramel in the nose. Lots of coffee flavors with a hint of cream in the aftertaste. Overall, very nice...

Dark brown pour with nearly no head. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Tastes of initial hop bitters followed by malt and coffee notes - all per the rather accurate commercial description!

Tasted on 9/12/11 from a 22oz bottle that I got as an extra in a trade. Pours an opaque nearly black dark brown with a smooth beige head that slowly recedes to a thin even layer of lace. The nose is darkly roasted coffee, bitter chicory, dark chocolate, molasses, and burnt toast. The flavor is the same, extremely dry. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter coffee and dark chocolate finish.

Robust English style porter that lives up to the traditions of the delicious dark beer heritage. The finish is a definite splash of expresso/coffee. You can smell the earthy coffee undertones and you taste it with every sip! This porter is less sweet and definitely a tad bit bitter due to the expresso finish but this quality is what makes this beer delicious! People's Porter is definitely worth the try!

For a Porter I didn’t really like it - kind of surprised based on other reviews of Foothills. Not impressed.

Dark pour from bottle. Lots of roasted malts in this one, hints of coffee beans and espresso. Not as impressive as I had hoped but still fine.

Nearly black appearance with a large, rocky tan head and good lacing. Roasted malt aroma backed by bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Earthy, smokey flavors with notes of brown bread, caramel and chicory. The bittersweetness reappears in the aftertaste. Full-to-medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leads to a lingering finish.

My Bottom Line:
This roasty and chocolatey Porter shares savory malts in a chewy body leading to balancing malt and hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the blackened dark brown.
-Malt flavors are particularly well developed in this one.
-Roasted chicory aromas are found in there as well.
-This is a very good textbook example.
